Describe your three dream dinner party guests and why?
This is hard! There are so many to choose from! But here goes:
- David Attenborough – because he has lived an absolutely fascinating life and understands our natural environment so well. I wonder if there is anywhere he hasn’t been, and if so then why. I love travel and I love our natural environment, he is top of my list.
- Elon Musk – because he is an interesting thinker and could provide some real insights on where the world is heading in the future. And he is a bit controversial at times and this always injects a bit of life into a dinner party conversation!
- Jacinta Arden – because she is paving the way as a new breed of leader in the political scene and is both smart and savvy at a time when there is so much political disillusionment around the world.
What’s your favourite book on business and/or leadership?
Stephen Covey’s ‘7 Habits’ because it had such an impact on me early in my career. It instilled a passion for thinking and acting in a very deliberate way to achieve what I wanted to achieve.
